A very good movie, but you must remember it is a movie. Liberties have been taken for artistic reasons and that is understandable. Do not rely on it as historical facts. Case in point is the death of Al Sieber (Robert Duvall). As depicted in the movie, Al Sieber loses his life protecting on of the Apache scouts, when in fact he died when a boulder rolled over him years after the Geronimo Campaign. All in all it is a very good movie with outstanding performances by Wes Studi and Jason Patric.
I like movies that stay close to historical facts. Of course, movies have to entertain or risk losing money and we can't do that. A good balance in this movie I thought. The US army is used to advantage of financial powers in the east, same as today. Geronimo and the Apaches faced being robbed of their land or of being imprisoned and killed. There was no good choice for the Apache. The movie is sad but well made. The movie ends with Geronimo and a train car load of Apache people being sent to prison in Florida.
In 1894, Geronimo was moved from Florida to prison at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Geronimo died at Fort Sill in 1909 and is buried there as are other indian notables; Quanah Parker, Santana, and Setruk.
This would have worked better as a documentary. There's no plot, no gripping rising action. It just plods a long steadily with most of the main actors playing it so low-key that they're blah (except Wes Studi as Geronimo). The music score sounds cheap, like it's entirely done on a keyboard,
Don't be fooled by the title. It's not so much about Geronimo as it's about some white guys who are looking for him (a.k.a. Hollywood marketing to a bigger audience). Which is disappointing, because Wes Studi is a fabulous actor.
